Obscene amount of food and it just $25. Everything tasted great and they had lots of great beer options on tap to enjoy with their wonderful food! Glad we stopped in!

Went to this restaurant with my husband and have wanted to try it for a quite a long time. Well it is a bit over rated. The staff were polite but, they wanted to get you out the door for the next table of people to seat. The food was good the restaurant décor is nice. I think they have... More

The added bonus this time was that there were five of us so we were able to order several appetizers as well as entre to share. I could not think of one dish that was not good. From the... More

The food, oh the food. Settled with the 9 course meal, and it was an experience. The Cod was exceptional. Service was authentic and complimentary to the food. Definitely will be coming back.

We ate at the Banana Leaf in late November 2016. Menu choices are extensive, the food and service is very good and the prices are reasonable.

Not having had Malaysian food in a while and being adventurous we decided to see how good this restaurant was. On learning it was quite popular and needed to make a reservation we did It was good advice. It was a busy place. Not wheel chair accessible - about 4 steps up. Luckily our handicapped nephew did not accompany us.... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Shaughnessy
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
